Filming of great theater
6 November 2004 | by davisprofSee all my reviews

I have to say that I have not seen this film. But I did see the stage production on which it is based. A single actress reciting Eliot's "The Waste Land" may not strike you as very interesting. But Fiona Shaw and director Deborah Warner are so brilliant that their collaboration remains one of the most memorable theatrical experiences in my life. In New York, this short performance cost more than $2 a minute. But it was sold out, and no one felt short changed. Fiona Shaw rarely appears in films or even on stage in America. And while she is always amazing in her short roles -- as the paralyzed professor in Doctor Sleep or mean Aunt Petunia in the Harry Potter series -- this performance allows her to show her full power and range. If the film catches even part of the magic of the stage production, it is certainly worth checking out.
